Quiz: Do You Know What To Expect From Porcelain Veneers?

Patients can have different expectations when it comes to fixing specific issues, but when it comes to having porcelain veneers placed, one desire is consistent – a dramatically improved smile. With veneers, it becomes possible to cover up many flaws over the course of one procedure. That can be a huge relief to people with several unflattering smile issues, as they can transform their appearance with less work than they may have expected. Once placed, porcelain veneers are permanent. You are not able to remove them, but they are designed to be durable enough to handle normal biting and chewing pressures.


True Or False: You have to remove your veneers every time you want to eat, or clean your teeth. If you fail to do so, they could become damaged.

True Or False: Veneers may be able to help you address intrinsic discoloration, a form of discoloration that a whitening treatment can be ineffective against.

True Or False: It is not possible to affix veneers to a dental crown.


False! Veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth, so you will never remove them on your own. Because of this, they are designed with the understanding that they need to be durable, so they will stay looking great over the years.

True! If you have discoloration caused by internal tooth problems, you can be disappointed to learn that a whitening treatment may be ineffective in helping your improve your appearance. However, your dentist may be able to address these issues by placing veneers over teeth.

True! Veneers cannot be bonded to a dental crown. If you have existing dental work, your dentist will need to plan your cosmetic treatment around this.
